There’s a rumble in the distance… small children are running away terrified… some old folks are saying that must mean the AGK is coming… we need to show courage and we need some crazy ideas…
WE NEED MORE KARAOKE VIDEOS!Since 2010 the AGK has attracted the brightest and best artists from across Scotland and beyond, all competing for the coveted prize. It’s a karaoke night where YOU make the videos. Its a karaoke video competition! Some of you will just want to make a simple, beautiful video and perform it by yourself. Others might have high concept ideas, direct a spectacular CGI fest and choreograph a team of performers around it. Some will be shy and just want to make a video that is so tremendous it will have the audience fighting over the right to sing it. The AGK has room for them all!
